You can lose elo even if you win, if it was against someone whose elo is much lower than yours.

Why? It prevents people from building a high elo for themselves by only beating klub players. If you are a pro or master player, and a klub player pushes you to 7-5, you lose elo, because you should be able to win that easily if you are really that good.

im not saying i should get elo when winning amateurs. im just saying, how in the hell can i get MINUS when winning?

it should at least be a neutral change, that is no elo change if i win...
